Drunk driver charged after 4 people killed and 8 hurt

Wrecks involving vehicles and pedestrians often result in terrible consequences. When a truck goes off a bridge and falls into a crowd, however, the resulting impact can be catastrophic. In a recent tragic accident, an apparently drunk driver in California drove through a guardrail along a bridge and plunged into a crowd below.

Former negligent driver speaks to California students about risks

A woman who has finished serving her sentence for an accident that killed a pedestrian recently spoke to students in California about the dangers of texting and driving. The now ex-convict acknowledged that she was a negligent driver and says her fatal error never ceases to haunt her. The woman lamented that her life will never be the same, all because she looked away from the road to read a text message from her boyfriend while driving.

California drunk driver arrested in death of 3-year-old boy

A fatal car wreck is tragic in any circumstance, but one that claims the life of a child is especially difficult to cope with. When a drunk driver takes the wheel after imbibing too much alcohol, he or she typically does not consider the devastating consequences that may occur. A recent crash in San Ramon, California demonstrates how horrific drunk driving accidents can be.

Police car accident results in wrongful death lawsuit

When police respond to urgent calls and need to travel with speed, care is generally taken to ensure the safety of other motorists and pedestrians in their paths. In some cases, however, officers may injure others in their haste to get to the scene of a crime. In a recent California case, a car accident caused by a police vehicle driven by an officer resulted in the death of one man and injuries to several others.

5-vehicle car accident claims the lives of 2 California men

When accidents occur on busy California highways, the potential for multi-car involvement is typically high. However, when an accident occurs during rush hour, the chances of significant property damage, injury and potential loss of life rise considerably. Recently, a five-vehicle chain reaction car accident cost the lives of two young men.

Negligent driver kills 91-year-old veteran on motorized scooter

With a variety of transportation options available today, elderly citizens are able to continue living active lives far into their twilight years. Unfortunately, for those who choose them as their method of transportation, motorized scooters are fraught with the same kind of dangers as faced by those on bicycles and on foot when traveling on America's roadways. Scooters can be easy for drivers to overlook due to their small profiles and close proximity to the ground. On Veterans Day, which is designated to honor members of the armed forces for their service, an elderly veteran was tragically killed by an allegedly negligent driver while driving a motorized scooter on the side of a California road.

Fatal 2014 crash involving Lyft leads to wrongful death lawsuit

In the early morning hours of Nov. 1, 2014, just after a Halloween party ended, a couple ordered a Lyft ride to get home. It was a stormy night, and after they got into the Lyft, they were soon on a freeway. During their trip, the Lyft driver swerved out of the way of a stopped vehicle, but the sudden movement caused the driver to lose control of his vehicle and collide with two trees. One of the male passengers, only 24 years old, was killed in the resulting crash, and the man he was dating suffered injuries in the wreck too, requiring him to stay in the intensive care unit for three days.

Distracted driving patrol nets 68 citations

Distracted driving is a scourge on our streets and roads that puts countless innocent people at risk of being involved in an accident. The scariest thing about the phrase "distracted driving" doesn't even necessarily mean "texting while driving" or "cellphone use while driving" -- though, obviously, those are two of the major components of distracted driving. Distracted driving can also involve daydreaming drivers, radio-changing drivers and conversation-having drivers.
